about

"The West" was recorded 100% live in a single take to analog tape. There is no post production editing. What you hear and see is exactly how it was performed in the moment it was recorded.

lyrics

I'm innocent and on the lam
I'm a dying breed
A posse made of horse and man
Has been chasing me

"Alive or dead- cash reward,"
Says the wanted sign
All evidence has been ignored
Injustice is their crime

Hey I don't know what the hell I've done
Hey now I now how the West was won

In a flash they've surrounded me
On every side
No escape and no retreat
Still I won't abide
